A Mardi Gras Queen and educator, Cherice Harrison-Nelson, organized this exhibition of the colorful, feathered, and sequined gowns of other Mardi Gras Indian Queens. While African American men’s roles in the Mardi Gras Indian tradition goes back to the early days of Carnival, Harrison-Nelson curatorial choices show the more recent and special work of women, their pride, and their other work in creating and parading.
